This uniquely shaped yet distinguished-looking vase has a rough finish and a pair of gold and silver cranes on the front and a pair of gold and silver tortoises on the back. Cranes and tortoises both connote longevity in Japan. Ideal as a birthday or anniversary gift for the elderly, but of course is suitable for all occasions.
Waterproofed for use as a vase, but can be enjoyed as an ornamental piece as well. Comes in a gift box.
Regular care is easy, just dry thoroughly with cloth.
